advisers. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you very much. i want to ask you what's just happened. the house minority leader, john boehner said he would consider extending the middle class tax cuts. if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for it, he said, on "face the nation" this morning. what is your reaction? >> i haven't seen the comments. i noticed the qualifier if my only choice is. if he -- if he's truly saying that we can, as the president called for, get a broad consensus to extend the middle class tax cuts, we should do it. we shouldn't hold that hostage for the argument about the tax cuts just for the very, very highest income people. if he's for that, i would happy. in the past, we have seen some of these circumstances in which what appears to be the offer of doing the sensible thing in the light of day, there's a little bit of a feeling of, well if the president's for it, i'm against it, then it falls apart. >> he does obviously say he's going do everything he can to fight to make sure that all the tax cuts
'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board
will influence the tea party ties. joining us now with a preview from washington is our own kellie wright. good morning, kellie. >> good morning, gretchen. primary season, today is the day voters will continue to determine contending november 49 days away. let's continue with the drama unfolding in delaware where three weeks ago it looked like republican congressman and former governor mike castle would be the easy favorite to vie for the senate seat in november but now castle may find himself outdone by christine o'donnell backed by the tea party express which has a $220,000 out of state ad to help the unknown gain over popular castle. even palin recorded call and supported radio ads for o'donnell. >> there's a wave, a tidal wave coming to delaware. we're riding it, my opponent is drowning in it. >> the tea party influence is palpable in the state where joe biden served as senator for 36 years. the tea party labelled castle as a rhino. now a virtual tie. o'donnell is not without her own problems. she's undergone some personal financial issues. >> she has a lot of strikes against her, more than
the republican cannibalism i was ahead in the polls. and, you know, if we can put this behind us and do some damage repair and, you know, then we can turn the two-point lead to a 10-point lead. >> some republicans fear o'donnell will cost them the chance to win the seat joe biden held for 0 years as well -- 30 years as well as deny them a critical seat needed to win in the majority. >> it's clear that the tea party movement has the upper hand in the republican primary electorate. that is not the general election. >> meanwhile, in new jersey, establishment favorite won the g.o.p. nomination to face democratic congressman paul hodes in november. the win was so close against conservative glamante, it was not decided until this afternoon. >> despite all the tension between tea party conservatives and establishment republicans and whether it's a good thing or bad thing that tea party candidates keep winning there are two things that are benchmarks undeniable. since the primaries began more than 4 million republican ballots have been cast over democrats. and in delaware, where christine o'donnell
in thursday's u.s. senate republican primary in delaware. she now faces the general election 40 days from now. o'donnell is single, 42 years old with a background in public relations. previously she sought the republican nomination for u.s. senate during the 2006 primaries. four years ago. and she lost. in 2008, two years ago, she gained the uncontested republican nomination for the u.s. senate in the general election, challenging city senator joe biden. biden won by 457,000 to o'donnell's 140,000. biden outspent o'donnell $4.9 million, to o'donnell's $116,000. nearly 32 times 2 times bigger o'donnell's budget. her opponent for the 2010 republican primary for the u.s. senate was michael castle, a nine-and former two-term governor of delaware. >> don't ever understint the power of we, the people. >> two months ago she had no money, no campaign, and many believed in no chance. with a 23% approval rating, she looked like a long shot against the household name of michael castle. but the palin endorsement led to a $600,000 pledge to the o'donnell campaign by the tea party. even after her victory,
, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre
. now, it's just not smart from an economic perspective for us to allow a whole bunch of those jobs that are right here in the united states to go away. >> reporter: boehner made headlines last month demanding the president fire his economic team. mr. obama returned fire in his home, calling out his name no fewer than times. >> there were no new policies for mr. boehner. >> we've offered him new ideas for the last 20 months. >> reporter: on sunday, boehner said he wants to see the bush era taxes for all income brackets, but would support an extension limited to the middle class if he has no other choice. >> i think that's bad policy. i don't think that's going to help our economy. >> reporter: still, the white house claimed the g.o.p. leader had changed his tune. >> i think that congressman boehner was fairly clear yesterday in outlining a position that the president outlined last week. >> reporter: on sunday, a new york times article portrayed boehner as indebted to lobbyists and 45 currently or recently departed house members raised more from lobbyists than boehner, among them
's senate g.o.p. primary. >> molly lyon live for us in boston with the roundup of all the results. good morning you to. >> good morning, steve, gretchen and brian. that's right, you know, total upset win in delaware, this is really a big story where the tea party favorite christine o'donnell managed to beat out mike castle. really a political legend in that state for the g.o.p. nomination for the senate seat. castle was a nine term congressman, is a nine term congressman and a former governor and won statewide election a dozen times. was backed by state g.o.p. leaders who aggressively slammed o'donnell throughout the course of this campaign referring to her as a liar and fraud. she proved him wrong, though, showing she could win this election. she won with 53% over castle's 47%. the national republican senatorial congratulated o'donnell. in a brief and underwhelming statement last night. she wouldn't be getting some national support because they don't think she'll be able to beat the democratic challenger in the fall. a very tight race, even right now as the votes are coming in between
'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. once again, fox news underattack. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. you may remember about this time last year the white house declared war on fox news. saying that we were irresponsible in our reporting and biased against the administration. i write about that extensively in my new book pinheads and patriots because it actually helped us. our ration went up and the credibility of the administration went down. after a few weeks of that nonsense a truce was declared and business went on as usual. war is being resurrected not by president obama but some of his acolytes. with the election looming the democrats are in a tough spot. the economy ♪ getting much better and the voters are angry. all the polls say the democrats are in deep trouble. so a smoke screen is needed to mask reality, something to drive attention away from the economy and other problems. a few weeks ago the president went after congressman john boehner, the republican. well, that didn't go anywhere. so now some lefties are bringing fox news back
million. and the surprising detail, the deficit is down. the treasury department reports the u.s. is on track to record a $1.3 trillion deficit for the first fiscal year of president obama's presidency. 8% lower. that is 8% lower despite the stimulus spending than the 2009 deficit which included the last months of the bush presidency and reflected economic policy signed into law by the end of 2008 by president bush. house republican leader john boehner wants to inkraes that $7deficit by $700 billion bye extending those bush tax cuts on income over a quarter million. but with bob , schieffer, he ev admitted 99% of small businesses will see no benefit from the cut and that 3% of what he calls small businesses make hatch the money. > in a joint committee on taxation which is a nonpartisan body, says that only 3% of the small business people you keep talking aboutll the small business people that are going to get taxed, only 3% would be affected by that, or do you quarrel with that figure? is that a right figure or a wrong figure? >> well, it may be 3% but it's half of small business
do in the general election? i love election years. that does it for us tonight. keith olbermann starts right now. that does it for us. good night. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow. the midterms and the party of the rich versus the party of everybody else? all hell breaks loose in the gop when john boehner hints he might vote for tax cuts that don't include tax cuts for the top 2%. >> the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. >> john has had to walk that back so far that the gop now says it will vote against, might even filibuster against tax cuts for the poor, middle class, and slightly well off if there aren't also cuts for daddy warbucks. and they're even talking about another government shutdown if they take the house. and, by the way, the federal deficit under the first full fiscal year is down. it's down by 8%. the federal deficit is down by 8%. it would seem as if you could make enough out of this and the tax cuts for the rich to save the midterms. we'll ask obama campaign manager david plum. newt g
with a built-in expiration date this year. mr. boehner demanded that democrats vote on taxes without using the suspension procedure. suspension would require a two-thirds vote. more on that in a moment. meantime, regarding the senate's failure, senator dick durbin on what he sees as simple math. >> i can count, and i know you can, too. we have 59 democrats and not a single republican in the senate supports our position that we need to do something that's responsible to reduce our deficit but also to help middle income families bring us out of this recession. >> why will that be different after the election? >> well, i hope it will be different. occasionally one republican will break ranks and help us. what it gets down to, we can count, and we know we don't have 60 votes for our tax position. we want to basically say after the election when we still face a deadline by the end of the year we'll take up all these tax issues. >> however, immediately after the election, the terms of three appointed senators expire from the states of illinois, west virginia, and delaware. if republicans win any
with no name, newt gingrich is with us. welcome back. >> good to be with you. >> sean: nobody wants to be seen with barack obama. nobody wants to be seen with nancy pelosi. more democrats are running ads against health care than for health care this is about a republican civil war, if you listen to the media. >> the news media will do everything it can for the next 47 days to try to talk about anything except 9.6% . -- unemployment. trillions in debt. disaster of the democratic party's health bill. the failure of the democratic either in the gulf of mexico with the bp oil disaster. the elite media will try turn every return right, if republicans are still standing on election day whether it is christine o'donnell or it is angle in nevada or it is rand paul in kentucky or you name it, they are gonna win. and they are gonna win for a simple reason. the obama democrats have been grinding the economy into the dust. leaving americans unemployed. we just had the highest number in poverty released today. i think in years. we have the highest number of -- >> sean: one in seven americans in poverty now
us how we needed to get behind the party. and how we needed to get behind a candidate that was electable. what i really want to do is tell you folks how to work with a candidate and how to get things done. and i said, sir, with all due respect, no one is going to tell us how to take care of business. >> we're not going to do what you say anymore, carl. this morning it was limbaugh's turn to freak out. >> i've never heard karl so animated against a democrat as she was against christine o'donnell last night. talking about christine o'donnell's baggage, where is the criticism of democrats? where has it been? if 51 seats was really the objective, if getting that majority is really that important, then lets go balls to the wall for christine o'donnell. >> happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts. this morning, christine o'donnell swung back at rove and turned to the unsmooth unfactual word to refudiate the charges. >> everything he's saying is unfactual, and it's a shame because he's the same so-called political guru that predicted i wasn't going to win. and we won an
in their neighborhood. what a wonder. it's what made us great. what a country and we can have it again. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? pledge this. >> they proposed $4 trillion worth of tax cuts and $16 billion in spending cuts and then they said we're going to somehow magically balance the budget. that's not a serious approach. >> as the president pounds the republicans on the lemon of a pledge, even the gop begins to back down. those weren't plans. they were just measurements. >> once americans understand how big the problem is, then we can begin to talk about potential solutions. >> and it's really a pledge to nowhere. the economic policy institute with an astounding crunch of the numbers. how many jobs would the gop pledge kill off? >>> the new health care metric. the number of americans who think we need more doubles the number who think we need none and why is that poll a secret? let's go to the videotape. >> evolution is a myth and even darwin himself -- >> evolu
